  • Excellent Purchase For the Price

    Overall this was an excellent purchase - I was looking for a small to medium sized generator for tailgating and home use in case the power goes out. So far, I have only used it for tailgating and it has been great. Just a few steps to get it running the first time, and the pull starter was easy to use and it kicked on after 3 pulls. I haven't really pushed the load near its capacity, but it seems to handle normal electric devices with no trouble. The downsides: 1) It is a little too heavy for my wife to move easily (about 60 lbs) 2) It is moderately loud, so you can't expect to run it in a place that needs to be quiet. A friend of mine had one of the sweet Honda generators that cost about a grand, and you could barely hear that thing running. This is not like that, but then again I paid about 1/5 of what he did. After a while at the tailgate it just becomes white noise and is not that noticeable. 3) Only one plug port on the actual generator I see all of those items as minor; if any of the above are big problems, then you just need to break down and spring the big money for one of the fancy Honda or Yamaha models. For my purposes, this was an excellent buy. As long as it lasts (just bought it a month ago) then I will not regret this purchase at all.

  • Better than expected

    I received the generator and found that there was very little preparation involved before starting it. I fueled it and applied the choke. To my surprise it started on the first pull and has every pull since. I have a small 18' motor home and the generator works perfectly for my needs. Low noise was the unexpected plus.I bought this size motor home so I can take it places where larger sized motor homes cannot go. It's nice to have air conditioning where ever I am camping.

  • GEAT LITTLE GENERATOR !!!

    This is the fifth Champion Generator I have owned. Second for this Model. Four others I have sold to friends for my cost. Each one wanted them after seeing me operate them. Sold for my cost. Bought this one for the great Price I got from Overstock.com and the FREE shipping was the deciding factor. You can not do better for this size Generator for the cost. Portable and it does everything it says it does. I have talked to Champion with some issues I had and they have been more then HELPFULL. Thier Customer Service people have been GREAT and they back thier product 100%. I can not say anything BAD about the Generators and CHAMPION Equipment. The quality they put into the Generators is second to none since they are Made in CHINA. You will be more then HAPPY buying this Generator for the third of the price of a RED or BLUE.

  • Great generator & very quiet

    I bought this to use at my mining claim to use on Dry Vac n lighting. It handle that with no problem. It was easy to use right from the box, just put some 10-30w oil in it n straight unleaded fuel n you're ready to run it. Adjust the choke on the side n pull the cord, it started the first pull n idled smoothly. It's very quiet which is important because I'm usually not that far away from it n I can still hear someone talking to me. It's not very heavy even with a full tank of gas. The only down side is that it only has one plugin outlet.

  • Just right

    I promised myself that the first thing I would do when my power came back on after Hurricane Isaac, the first thing I would do is buy a generator. Six days later, when my electricity came back on. I bought this. I live alone, so even though it is not very powerful...it's perfect for me.

  • champion 1500 watt gen

    Started right up . Ran fine. Is just a little noisier than expected, but this does not affect performance. Like that you don't have to mix oil with the gas. looks well made, not flimsy.Can't predict reliability, as only ran it for a short while to see how well it worked

  • It works!

    Used this generator twice for a few minutes as a test to see if it works and it does! Heavy for one person to carry so you will need a helping hand. Color looks great on pic and in real. Will buy another one if i need to. :)

Will this item function properly at 9,000 feet altitude, or does it need a carb modification kit? If so what is the kit number, and cost? viewlake on Apr 13, 2012

Answer This Question

I haven't been that high in altitude with it yet. At 7000 it ran just fine. jenn67 on Mar 9, 2013
 
Thank you for your inquiry. Generators lose wattage as the altitude increases. At that altitude the correct wattage for this generator would be 800 running instead of 1200 and the peak watts would be 1020 instead of 1500. A carb modification kit is not made by the manufacturer for this item. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 12, 2013
